About

As a queer Trini-Canadian, I combine my knowledge of psychology with my intersectional feminist values and lived experiences when supporting my clients. I specialize in working with LGBTQ and BIPOC (racialized) clients as well as intersectional identities. In addition to expertise in culturally-sensitive therapy, I'm also well-versed in issues related to queer and trans health, polyamory/non-monogamy, and kink/BDSM culture.
I approach my work through an anti-oppressive framework to assist my clients in understanding how systems, including family dynamics and wider socio-political structures, may have contributed to their current challenges, in order to facilitate insight and cultivate empowerment.
I work to support my clients in adopting mental wellness, exploring identity formation, understanding intergenerational trauma, navigating issues related to body image and gender dysphoria, and negotiating interpersonal relationships. To learn more, please visit www.yasminkowlessar.com.
